Best of the Rest w/e 12 Apr 2013
Tope Koleoso on spiritual warfare and the dangers of neglecting the supernatural. So important.
Sadness and Madness - Beth Moore wrote this impassioned piece after hearing of the depression and suicide of Rick and Kay Warren’s son - a heart-felt reminder that you never know what people are going through.
Here’s Ross Douthat in the New York Times on the “institutional” vs “soul mate” views of marriage, and why the change matters. Excellent.
It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve had an appearance from Doug Wilson. He makes up for it with this impish piece - the SSM debate isn’t about what people can do in private, but what people can say in public.
Who speaks for complementarians? A brilliant answer from Jen Pollock Michel in Christianity Today.
And finally… Topical and theological - a delightful letter written by Margaret Thatcher in 1980 to a nine-year-old boy, on the perfect example of Jesus and how she tried - but failed - to live up to it.
